    Question Re: Webcam problems with skype and cheese

    I have just upgraded to 12.4 (absolutely no problems) from xubuntu 11.10 but cannot get my Quickcam Messenger webcam to work on either cheese or skype - it worked previously on cheese. The webcam is v412: USB (046d: 08da) and I have auto detect highlighted.

    Can someone please help.

    Problem now solved with many thanks to Tech 226

    I was a little too quick as problem is only solved if I keep using bin bash code on terminal window as suggested by Tech 226. Webcam still does not work if I launch Skype. Does anyone know how to fix this?
